Thursday Things

What’s happening in terms of publishing:

Well you saw the pretty cover. :grin:

1. Finished Tidal Wave and it’s not going in the anthology. 37K by the end. Working on cleaning it up, writing the synopsis and getting ready to submit. I like the story and feel 8/10 on getting it accepted somewhere.

2. Got another rejection today. Yup, third ‘no’ on a story, and again it’s a ‘no…but’. Editor at Samhain offered a revise and resubmit for Wolf in Flight. As usual, she is right on the money with her comments and suggestions. Gag, I hate it AND love it when she’s right. I told her while I’d like a yes I’d prefer a good story in the end. It’s true, but I’m going to have to work hard on this revision. Back to the drawing board!!

3. I’m on the list for submitting a free story for Samhain for Valentines Day. They started this program over Christmas and it was a wonderful success. Authors write a story story and donate it to the readers so they can enjoy and try out the different writers styles. I’m working on that now and will be able to link it in Febraury! What a treat.

4. Gotta smile at this one. I’ve been invited to attend the Valentines Day dinner with the Alberta Romance Writers Association that I belong to. I’m a ‘guest speaker’ and get to share about my journey to being published. This is going to be especially fun because I’ll get to see Tammy Lyn again, who I really enjoyed meeting at the session in November.

Planning for the New Year

Goals for 2009

As I look forward and anticipate what’s going to happen this coming year I have to remember there are the things I can control and the things that I can’t.

So I’m setting goals based on what I can do. Although I’d love have a goal of publishing X number of books there’s no way I could make it happen. I can write the books, submit them, work on my craft so the stories get better and better and more likely to sell.

But unless I can figure out a way to get into the computers of the various publishers and send myself acceptance letters…

And I also know that it’s hard to set goals for an entire year and be realistic. I’ve got one year of writing under my belt now, so there’s something to compare to. However if I –do- sell more stories there will be more editing and publishing work, more promotional work…

So I’m setting the goals in general and then will revise as the year progresses to keep challenging myself. That’s why I set goals. To have something to aim at and push me to improve and keep moving.

1. Write/complete 5 stories. I’m basing this on finishing 6 stories last year from March to December, but I want to add a little time since I’m now blogging etc.

2. Submit at least one book / quarter. It’s easy to push in spurts and ideally if I do start selling regularly having spaced out release dates would be the best. Not that I’m counting chickens ahead of time, but planning in case. ?

3. Submit to at least three different publishers throughout the year. I love Samhain, but it would be good to have books with a couple publishers.

4. Submit to at least one print publisher, like Harlequin. The process is slightly different and another challenge to try.

5. Keep blogging regularly. It’s fun and keeping me on my toes. I’m planning on little change to make life easier for everyone. ?

That’s it for the start of goal planning. I need to think a little longer and then I’ll add more. Probably some craft goals. And the goal of making it to a couple of special events like the Lori Foster gathering…

Holiday Hey

Sorry about missing posting Fae Visions yesterday. It’s the holidays and they’ve officially started for our household. My brother arrived and transfered all my computer data from one old laptop to another that won’t freeze and lose my work!

I will post more of the story over the next little while but with the first of guests arriving yesterday and the ski hill opening… life got busy.

I plan to be on a holiday schedule until after Christmas, which doesn’t mean that I’ll post less often, just not in a regular routine. Yes, a change in plans but life needs to keep on moving. I am excited to say I think I’ve got the bugs worked out of my current wip, Tidal Wave, and got a bit more added. Yeah!!! Updates as they happen.

I hope everyone has a wonderful vacation. Take the time to enjoy the little moments, refresh and renew for the coming year.

It’s going to be a great one!

Another one bites the dust

The continuing story of publishing ins and outs.
—————-
1. Good news/bad news. The good news is I’m no longer on pins and needles waiting to hear if I made it into the Cowboy Anthology being put out by Samhain. Bad news is I didn’t make it in.

I’m fine with the decision. I know I still have a ways to go as I improve as a writer and while Rocky Mountain Heat is a good story it’s not perfect. The editor of the anthology made a few good comments about my work and passed the story over to my editor at Samhain.

This, I hear, is really good news because they don’t usually do that. Stories submitted that don’t make it don’t get passed on. Hmmm. So back to pins and needles? Lol!

2. With this news I’ve got some decisions to make about future anthology calls. I -like- submitting for anthologies but they might not be the best in the long run. I’m kind of using up all my good karma since it’s twice I’ve submitted to one and had my work passed on to another editor. Can lightning strike three times or more? Of course, if the book is good enough. But if the book is good enough then I should be able to simply submit it on it’s own.

I’m pondering this since I’m in the midst of writing the water shifter, Tidal Wave, intending it for the shifter call due March 1st, 2009. But I’m sitting at 20K right now with a max of 30K allowed I might be crowding the story to try and fit it in. And I think the story would be fun to submit to Anne, my editor at Samhain.

3. I’ve been starting to think about release day and promoting Wolf Signs. It seems very early to even start since it’s March 17 and a looooooooong time from now. But trying to arrange guest blog opportunities I’ve found slots already booked! So I’ve begun talking to a few people and will continue over the next couple of weeks. Once I have a few things lined up I’ll stop worrying about it until Feb rolls around. If you’re reading this and I can guest blog with you, let me know!! :)

4. I have to admit that right now I like the writing and the visiting with other writers/readers part the best of all the areas of publication. Even though every step has been fun, there’s something incredible about turning back a page and seeing a story that -I’ve- written. And the people are amazing!

5. Final note- my husband finished reading Wolf Signs. He said he liked the wolf fight at the end the best. He’s not into romance and I think the sex made him squirm. :) So cheers to him for reading it!!
